[image]RoadRunner CMU brochure - Samuel Coniglio
An early attempt to market the flight operations control technology developed for the Delta Clipper Experimental (DC-X) project. The "RoadRunner" Control Monitor Unit (CMU) was the next generation 64 bit Automated Checkout System (ACS) for monitoring real time data acquisition from various sources. Developed by the McDonnell Douglas Automated Checkout Systems department at NASA's Real Time Systems Lab (RTSL) at the Kennedy Space Center.

[movies]Reusable Launch Vehicle - McDonnell Douglas
Narrated by Apollo 12 astronaut and DC-X flight manager Pete Conrad, this is an introduction to the Delta Clipper Experimental (DC-X) reusable launch vehicle test project. It was initiated by the U.S. Air Force's Strategic Defense Initiative Organization (SDIO) and built by McDonnell Douglas corporation. This is a test article for a fully Reusable Launch Vehicle (RLV) to send people and payloads to Low Earth Orbit (LEO)...

[movies]Space Access Society 1996 - Space Access Society
A detailed compilation of Delta Clipper Experimental (DC-X) and X-33 Reusable Test Vehicle (RTV) videos by the Space Access Society in 1996. Each video is preceded by description text. The DC-X project was an experiment in reusable rocketry. It was the first Vertical Take Off and Landing (VTOL) rocket vehicle to fly multiple times, with the goal of making future Single Stage To Orbit rockets to fly to space cheaply and reliably...
